About Glint (Beta)

The Global Currency

We wanted to make money fairer

We felt it was unfair that money is prone to depreciate in ways we have no control over. We believe the readymade solution had existed for millennia, it just hadn’t caught up with modern life – that solution is gold.

Gold – now in electronic payments

So, we built Glint to reintroduce gold as money, for the first time ever as a global currency that can be used in today’s electronic payments world.

Fair pricing

Banks, forex companies, gold dealers and money transfer bureaus often hide a mark-up in their exchange rate of between 3% and 8%. Glint has transparent and fair pricing which uses the real interbank exchange rate.

Independent and reliable money

Gold is the most reliable form of money. Independent and incorruptible, its value is recognised everywhere. Stored in vaults all over the world, it has been inaccessible. Until now.

Regulated and safe

Glint is regulated and fully authorised by the FCA. Using the latest technology we have bank level security, which is independently tested and audited. Your money is safeguarded in segregated client accounts and your physical gold in one of the largest, most secure, independent and insured vaults in Switzerland.

More control and choice

To give you more control over your money and help manage it in ways that genuinely work for you, the Glint account, smartphone app and Mastercard® allow anyone to store, exchange, send and spend local and foreign currencies, including for the first-time physical gold – the most universally trusted form of money. By making gold more liquid and technologically accessible than ever, it gives everyone an equal opportunity to prosper.

Made in London

Based in the heart of Shoreditch, London, the passionate, experienced Glint team are dedicated to bringing reliability, independence, control and choice to your money.
